Its hard to see in the picture what it is because its fuzzy but if its staghorn look at my thread a couple down from yours. I used the excel treatment and it got rid of all of it and gave me my aquarium back. Since the treatment I started using the recommended on the excel bottle which is 5ml a day for a 55g aquarium and lowered my light. Non of it has come back. I was worried I was going to have to throw out all my plants but excel saved them.

My staghorn is still gone. I have been dosing the 5 mL of excel a day because on one of the threads I read I heard that the chemical in it acts as a sporicide. On my 55g I dosed 15 to 20 mL a day and in about 9 days all the staghorn was red or white and soon disappeared. Now my plants are going crazy without algae all over them!
